Zubat vs Pidgey by Tygarii-Razil Zubat vs Pidgey by Tygarii-Razil
Random sketches months ago; started brushing it up but got stuck with the overall composition/color. I thought about revisiting with an entirely surreal color scheme but.. meh? If you have any ideas to improve it I'd appreciate it.

Think quietly how stiffly silent that forest would be, just quietly flickering bugs dashing through the last of the sunlight. A quick hard rap of flipping wings draws closer before it stops dead, a pidgey clutching hard to the bark. Not a moment later the less noisy "kirsh" of zubat's wings strongly beating to catch up, blindly looking for it's victim.

That is one beutiful rendered Zubat (and of course,pidgeyot/pidgeotto,eh Im kinda tired so I sort of mix the name up now XD ah anyhow,but yeah pidgey line bird is looking great too!)

But that zubat surely is amazing,love bats,and well I sort of like zubat,but this one surely made it more amazing then it allready is :love: !!

*ok I guess I have to fetch some Z's,feeling so tired ^^' *
many apologises for that heh - but at least you know why im mixing the poke'bird's name up if nothing else x3

I like how realistic the pokemon look. The details on the feathers and the look of thin membranes on the zubat's wings are really well done.

Aw thanks! These are possibly the easier ones to do in this way. Jigglypuff, hippip, cherubi and some of the newer ones make me scratch my head.

It took me a long while to like Zubat but after going with a crobat in one game, he snuck into some of my favorites.

This is probably one of my favorite interpretations of Zubat. I love it.

I think you could've gone with a little more contrast in the background, mostly in the form of darker darks. Very nice detail on the tree bark, and excellent animals.

I was told to get dragon tears, so was trying to insult the gyrados until it cried.. It is hard to tell from the inside of a stomach, but it was making some 'hurphurphurp" noises. I considered the drawbacks of throwing a pokeball from inside.
